Make / Models:
FIRESTONE / DESTINATION A/T
CERTAIN FIRESTONE DESTINATION A/T P265/75R16 PASSENGER TIRES MANUFACTURED BETWEEN JANUARY 29 AND FEBRUARY 4, 2006.

TIRES BUILT UNDER SUCH CONDITIONS MAY EXPERIENCE AIR PERMEATION INTO THE BODY OF THE TIRE. OVER TIME, THIS MAY LEAD TO TREAD SEPARATION AND AIR LOSS, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN A VEHICLE CRASH.
FIRESTONE WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND REPLACE THE TIRES FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING JUNE 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT FIRESTONE AT 1-800-367-3872.

Potential Tire Failure Lawsuit
Tire and vehicle manufacturers, including Bridgestone/Firestone, can be held accountable when passengers and drivers die or experience serious injuries in rollovers, roof crushes, tire blowouts, tread separations and other major accidents. In these events, make sure to maintain possession of tires, tire treads, broken tire pieces and the vehicle involved in the accident – all of this counts as essential evidence of crashworthiness that can make or break your case. Never send anything back to the manufacturer without first consulting an experienced personal injury attorney.
